Testimonials from Workshop Participants:

"I was initially hesitant about learning Chinese calligraphy because I didn't know how to write Chinese characters. However, my Chinese teacher made the experience enjoyable and reassuring during our virtual workshop. Her explanations and breakdown of each stroke, along with her techniques, helped me understand the art of Chinese calligraphy better. She even provided tips on making the characters more visually pleasing. Thanks to her guidance, I overcame my initial fear and gained a new skill! If you've ever wanted to learn Chinese calligraphy, I highly recommend her workshop." Maria @UK  

"As an English and Hindi calligrapher, I couldn't resist joining Mabel's Chinese calligraphy workshop. The course was excellent, with clear and easy-to-understand instructions. Mr. Wang demonstrated each stroke and pen hold meticulously, making the learning process simple and accessible. I was initially worried about making mistakes with the strokes, but Mr. Wang was patient with all the students and addressed all our questions. My final piece turned out so well that it deserves to be framed, and I'm grateful I took this class. "
